1939: Play­ing in the as­so­ciates’ mid-week com­pe­ti­tion on the Glad­stone golf links this af­ter­noon, Mrs AJ Jenk­in­son joined the se­lect band of golfers when she holed-in-one at No. 8 hole which is 157 yards. She is the sixth player to hole-in-one on the Glad­stone links.

1950: A se­vere elec­tri­cal storm which struck Glad­stone at 8:30 this morn­ing yielded over an inch of rain in less than an hour. Se­vere light­ning struck a house in Ann Street owned by Miss C Ward, caus­ing the switchboard to burst into flames. How­ever, this was ex­tin­guished be­fore the ar­rival of the bri­gade. The same storm gave over three inches of rain in the Boat Creek area of the Yar­wun dis­trict and sev­eral trees were shat­tered by light­ning. The rain here will have a ben­e­fi­cial ef­fect on grow­ing crops of pa­paws, pineap­ples and mel­ons.

1961: Mr Thiers Ernest Michel died sud­denly to­day. He was born at Black­all 69 years ago and was mar­ried there to Miss Ethel Martha Gill in 1915.

He also took a very keen in­ter­est in sport, es­pe­cially tennis. His wife died in 1958.
